How to open Control panel tool Personalization with CMD ?


In my company I need to set background of user laptop wich has win7 pro. I'm an admin in company, but users are only Users. In XP it was very easy, as I have open control panel tools with shift + mouse click >> Run as administrator. In Win7 does not worked for all control panel tools. I was also lookin in system32, but I could not found it.

Does anyone know how is it call Personalization file, and where is located?
I want to open module with CMD as: runas /user:domain\user control ???.cpl., or to Run as a different user from location where is Personalization tool file located.

Thank you advance for help to anyone.
